Making a difference in the learning differences community
The Exceptional Student Group offers education advocate services for families who have children and teens with special needs. Exceptional Advocates are available to meet with families and representatives from the student’s school. Our staff will provide knowledge and insight in developing effective 504 plans and Individual Education Plans (IEPs), including sufficient and useful classroom modifications, appropriate academic goals and objectives, and any other supports that will benefit the student. Often, parents are unclear of exactly what school systems offer to support children and teens with special needs. You don’t have to stand alone in an arena where you have limited experience; you can allow our team to stand by you and assist in developing a plan to best support your child.
Our main objective throughout this process is to educate the parents and other family members on how they can be the best advocate for their child in the future. Our advocacy program features an extensive education element specifically for parents and other family members. By thoroughly explaining all of the parts of the IEP and how all of the parts work together in order to make an appropriate and comprehensive plan, the family will become knowledgeable regarding Georgia's special education rules and regulations and will begin to assume ownership of their child's education. We are making a difference in the learning differences community.
